So what happened to my collages today ? I went out in the rain to look at my vegetables and saw that blight had hit my tomato plants . So, there I was pulling out the plants and collecting the tomatoes . I also found that lunch was growing in the grass - yes, field mushrooms. So after cutting up everything for the chutney which included plums and some ginger I got lunch. The mushrooms were only a few, but wonderful to eat fried with a little butter and some home grown garlic. Luckily I did have some time not cooking and have finished most of the sewing on another bag using linen which I'd dyed a lovely dove grey.
I live in a late 18th century farmhouse or longere
with my husband and our three cats, Tortue,Pie and Samuel.
I taught Art in England for over 35 years and have always done my own work.
We moved to France over 7 years ago and and continue to work on the renovation of the house and making the garden.
